When you talk about holiday to Dubai, all I can think about is just luxuries. Dubai was just an extensive desert covered with sand. Today, Dubai is by far the world’s fastest growing city. Its rate of growth is threatening even to the major cities like Vegas.

Dubai boasts of many icons like the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa, the biggest aquarium, The Dubai Aquarium and the largest mall in the world, The Dubai Mall just to name but a few.
If you are planning a holiday to Dubai, Here is a list of some of the best places and Dubai hotels with the best deals to visit.

1. The Burj Al Arab

This is the most luxurious hotel in the world, in fact, the Burj has self-proclaimed itself as the only 7star hotel globally. Its design resembles a billowing sail making it the most photographed structure on earth. I enjoyed the sandy beaches that surround it. It’s a gorgeous place to visit, have and drink and take lots of photos.

2. The Dubai Marina and Jumeirah Beach Residence Walk.

The Dubai Marina is like a city within a city. It’s a host of twisting skyscrapers. People enjoy jogging around the Jumeirah Beach Residence Walk. Here you will also get to enjoy some of the world’s best cuisines some of the best restaurants in Dubai. An important place I’d recommend everyone visiting this area is the Frankie Dettori’s Frankie’s Italian Bar & Grill for the best-mixed grill.

3. The Dubai Mall

A holiday to Dubai is incomplete without paying a visit to the Dubai Mall. This is the largest mall in the world in area coverage. I enjoyed shopping at the mall, from designer clothes to pieces of jewelry and artifacts of the Arabic culture. The most amazing thing is the spectacular Dubai aquarium. This is the largest indoor aquarium with so many fish species which include 400 sharks. Outside the Dubai mall, you also get to enjoy the spectacular Dubai fountains. The fountains dance to a rhythm and light up in flashy colors, especially during the night.

4. Cultural Center, The Sheikh Mohammed

If you wish to learn more about the people of Dubai and the Islam culture at large, this is one place you don’t want miss. It was established by an Emirati man who married a European woman. This is a destination for cultural exchange where people from different cultures meet and exchange ideas about their cultures which help in appreciating other people’s cultures.

There are hundreds of other activities to do while in Dubai like Desert trails and off-road races, skiing at the desert behind Emirates Mall, hot air balloons rides among many other things. The people of Dubai are very hospitable and fun to be with. The city has excellent roads which flooded with super cars, but transportation is easy and free flowing. The weather is somewhat of a challenge based on the fact that the city sprouted from the desert, temperatures go up to highs of 50 degrees at times. But overall, Dubai is an awesome place to visit; I recommend you take a holiday to Dubai and experience the fun and luxury offered by Dubai hotel deals.
